Birth order, birth season might determine the next leader of the free world!

Perspective – It’s rather surprising and thought-provoking to learn exactly how many things influence ‘the way we are.’ This knowledge is valuable when you are playing match-maker or deal-maker! This type of research is just another nugget that helps me understand myself and the people around me. When we become aware of how things like birth order and birth season sway our development, we can make adjustments that help us win friends and influence people.

Warning: all my interactions are viewed through a firstborn frame of reference!

Parents are more strict with the firstborn than they are with later children (hand-raised!). Studies show this is why firstborns get better grades. FYI – figuring out how birth order impacts blended families is an industry unto itself!

The study of birth order runs deep and has been an industry for some time. Knowing the birth order has been helpful in all my relationships, personal and professional! Here is a link to a guy who has made a career out of it:

Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Beyoncé – all repping the firstborn over-achievers. Out of the first 44 presidents of the United States, 24 were firstborn children or firstborn sons; out of the first 23 NASA astronauts sent into space, 21 were firstborn children.

Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day

My favorite firstborn role model, Barack Obama, is also a “summer child” (more on that later). He’s also repping the “fire signs” pretty well – a subject good for a whole ‘nother article of its own!

Some researchers say looking at our birth season might help explain why some people are more moody than others. Certain biochemicals present in winter and summer babies are still present later in life. Ten presidents were summer babies (the fewest of all the seasons – winter has the most by a hair). All of the last four presidents (George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama) were born during the summer months. George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were also firstborns.

Note: Donald Trump is a summer baby, and he is a firstborn (kinda). Please dust-off your voter registration card!

If you have ever wondered how to help that one child of yours who seems a little “slower” than your others, start by instilling a hard-work ethic:

These are just a few of the many angles to my favorite subject, what some refer to as “pop psychology.” Some might call it “profiling” but anything that helps us get a better understanding of why we do what we do might lead to more peace on earth! So stay on the lookout for more clues to help you read people better and improve how people read YOU!
